Britney Spears


She may be crying over a cheating lover, but Britney Spears looks downright sexy in the music video for "Perfume."

The pop princess strips down to her white lacy skivvies (hello, rocking bod!) and cuddles up to the hunky costar who plays her boyfriend in the video.

Things get hot and heavy between the two as she sings about being paranoid that his roaming eye has lead him back into the arms of his ex-girlfriend.

And how could you miss the bright pink bottle of Brit Brit's Fantasy perfume sprinkled throughout the Joseph Kahn-directed video?

Speaking of…Kahn went on a Twitter rant early Tuesday morning explaining that he preferred the director's cut to the final product.

"Wish they'd release the director's cut of #perfume. Britney's performance is unbelievable. A true artist in it. Game changer," he wrote.

"Official cut is a good video as you'll soon see. But it's a true loss not to see what she really did. It's incredible. Beyond other artists."

While it's unclear what Kahn is specifically referring to, there were pictures of Brit holding a gun on set around the time that the video was shot.

"But to be very honest, Some people would prefer the official version. It's prettier. Simpler. I like it. But I love the DC so much more," he added. "Maybe if your voice is loud enough they'll release it. But other than that, I just needed to tell the truth. Something amazing is waiting."

The last tweet sparked oodles of fans to band together and create a petition urging her record company, RCA, to release the director's cut.

Spears opened up about the ballad to E! News exclusively, saying, "'Perfume' is incredibly special to me because it hits close to home, and I think the story is relatable to everyone."

She added, "Everyone's been through an insecure moment in a relationship that's left them vulnerable and I think this song captures that."
